Song 5


[This fifth song is to be sung while honoring the Lord’s khicuri]




eka-dina nilacale,  prasad-sevana-kale,

mahaprabhu shri-krishna-chaitanya

bolilen bhakta-gane,  khecaranna shuddha-mane,

seva kori’ hao aj dhanya


1) O brothers! One day in Jagannatha Puri, at the time of honoring the Lord’s prasad, Mahaprabhu Shri Krishna Chaitanya said to all the devotees, “May you become blessed on this day by honoring the khicuri of the Lord in a pure state of mind.



khecaranna pitha-pana,  apurva prasada nana,

jagannatha dilo toma sabe

akantha bhojana kori’,  bolo mukhe `hari hari’,

avidya-durita nahi robe


2) “Lord Jagannatha has given you varieties of extraordinary and wonderful prasad, such as khicuri and pitha-pana (a type of cake and condensed-milk preparation). Therefore, take all of this prasad until you are filled up to the neck, and with your voices chant `Hari! Hari!’ In such a transcendental atmosphere, ignorance and

sin cannot remain.



jagannatha-prasadanna,  virinci-shambhura manya,

khaile prema hoibe udoy

emona durlabha dhana,  paiyacho sarva-jana,

jaya jaya jagannatha jay


3) “These prasad foodgrains of Lord Jagannatha are worshipable even by Lord Brahma and Lord Shiva. Upon the eating of it, love of God arises within the heart. All of you have obtained such a rare treasure. All glories! All glories! All glories to Lord Jagannatha!”
